Character Sheet: Dragonborn Barbarian AKA Myshon Elro

This character sheet design was born from a Dice Advent Calendar prize. On day one, I received this wonderful die and instantly saw the draconic writing style. Katie’s mind, however, went straight to The Hobbit

I would have compromised and said this die belonged to a Dragonborn Druid, but this is a 12 sided die (d12) and not a d8. My next thought was a Halfling with Draconic Bloodline Sorcery, but again they have d6s for hit die and not a d12.

That’s when I saw who this die belonged to. A Dragonborn Barbarian with the Hermit Background! She is an ancestral guardian of the forest that once belonged to Halflings. 

Backstory

Myshon Elro is a stern woman and a highly valued member of the Dragonborn Elro clan. Generations ago, the Elros went into hiding after being rejected from their mainlands. They left war and political rebellion behind in the hope of finding a quiet life.

In their travels, the Elros found a quiet and soulful group of Halflings. It took a while for the Dragonborn’s to adapt to their new cohabiting life, but the Halflings of Featherfall were a generous and understanding people.

Soon the Dragonborns developed a strong protective community around the Halflings, offering to travel the harsher lands to find game and bat away roaming monsters. The Halflings, in turn, taught their new friends about using the world around them with harmonious intentions.

Because of this unexpected collaboration, a new generation of people emerged. Some Halflings started to develop magical wonders of Draconic Bloodline Sorcery, while some Dragonborns connected to the spirits of the lands.

Myshon Elro was one of the first to develop this connection. 

The spirits have told her that something strange is happening in the lands. Curious and ready to defend her people before the problem becomes dangerous, Myshon has started to travel to new locations and follow her spiritual friend’s guidance.

Character Sheet: Dwarven Rune Knight AKA “Raggron Stormbreaker”

The character inspiration for this character sheet was created from a single die in an Advent Calendar.

When I first saw this die, my mind instantly went to Dr. Strange, but Katie saw Dwarven hands in the creation of the sketchings.

However, Dr. Strange is a Wizard or Sorcerer character, and I couldn’t find an official subclass specializing in runes. If you know of something I’ve missed, put it in the comment section below!

The beautiful rune markings show signs of either an old language or a knowledgeable arcana. These elegant carvings cannot be ignored, so I’ve put the thought of Dr. Strange away for a moment to create a Dwarven Rune Knight

I know Fighters only have a 10-sided hit die, but how can I pick anything else for this rune-covered magic rock!

Backstory

Raggron Stormbreaker is from a clan of strong-willed wizards who practice the knowledge of runes. Raggron wasn’t smart enough to join in with the arcana classes but proved himself in wrestling matches.

Although Raggron is considered a good fighter, he has been consistently belittled for his lack of rune understanding. Frustrated, Raggron spent a decade secretly practicing arcana until one day, he was able to produce a single rune. 

Realizing his intelligence comes from active learning and not reading books, Raggron decided to leave his clan and travel the world, hoping to learn even more things on his trip.

Wooden D&D Tokens – A Review

As an eco-conscious person, I’m always trying to find an eco-friendly version of any item I’m after. When it came to Dungeons and Dragons miniatures, my perspective was the same.

Yes, it would be super cool to buy skeleton mini’s for a spooky Halloween session, and I’m not opposed to getting one, but I knew that a wooden version must exist somewhere!

That’s when I came across The Rusty Bison on Etsy! They had a whole range of wooden tokens to use as miniatures. They are perfect for low-plastic users like me, and for starting Dungeon Masters who don’t want to fork out a ton of cash as they build up their collection.

Let me explain why I love these tokens so much!

What Do You Get? 

When the package arrives, you receive three different types of tokens: large tokens, character tokens, and NPC tokens. Each one has an engraving marked into the face of the wood, which makes it easily identifiable.

As you can see, the player classes are clear to read, and the pictures are very detailed for the small space they occupy.

There was no smudging, burnt sides, or chips in our package, which you might expect from a wood carving item. This tells you the quality in which it was made.

Here is the complete list of items you will receive:

  • 18 Large Tokens Measuring a 1.75 inches radius
    • 3 Advantage Tokens
    • 3 Disadvantage Tokens
    • 3 Health Potion Tokens
    • 3 Inspiration Tokens
    • 4 1st Level Spell Slot Tokens
    • 2 2nd Level Spell Slot Tokens
  • 13 Character Class Tokens (one of each) Measuring a 1-inch radius
    • Fighter
    • Monk
    • Paladin
    • Ranger
    • Rogue
    • Sorcerer
    • Warlock
    • Wizard
    • Druid
    • Cleric
    • Barbarian
    • Bard
    • Artificer
  • 18 Non-Player Character Tokens, Measuring a 1-inch radius
    • 3 Ally Tokens
    • 10 Enemy Tokens Labeled 1-10 For Easy Tracking
    • 3 Boss Token
    • 1 Unknown Token
    • 1 Mimic Token

Ideally, I would want more character classes so my party’s two wizards could both use a Wizard token, but instead, I gave one the Wizard and the other the Sorcerer seeing as we didn’t have any sorcerers in the campaign.

I loved the tracked 10 Enemy Tokens because it made following battles super easy. Ideally, the Boss Markers would have the same numbering too, but how many Bosses will be in combat anyway.

I don’t really use the larger token to represent the named features, but they can be helpful reminders for inspiration and advantages. The spell slots will only help a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level spellcaster; anything past that and this token system will become redundant, as there aren’t enough tokens to represent all your spell slots.

Does It Fit A 1 Inch Square? 

The character tokens and NPC tokens fit neatly in a 1-inch square and a 1-inch hexagon, making them perfect for most battle maps you can buy online.

The larger tokens are meant to be used as reminders for players, but as a Dungeon Master, I would rather use them to represent monsters and shapeshifting. They take up almost four 1-inch squares, which is perfect for a large monster.

One of my characters plays a Druid and is constantly shapeshifting into one animal or another. These tokens make great markers for his new size!

What Are The D&D Tokens Made Out Of?

The tokens are made out of wood, but the bags they come in are see-through plastic. Unfortunately, The Rusty Bison doesn’t offer a cute little bag to put the tokens in, so you either have to re-use these packaging bags or find a nicer carrier elsewhere.

The Rusty Bison loves working with wood, and they have a whole wooden shop in their Etsy store. This is excellent news for me, and you better bet that I’ll keep coming back and buying more tokens and items as my campaigns grow!

Expanding The Pack

You’ll notice in The Rusty Bison’s wooden shop there are expansion packs for these tokens. You can buy additional inspiration tokens, additional spell slot tokens (and they go all the way up to 9th level), additional class tokens, and more!

These expansions come at a super low cost, too, so you won’t break the bank adding to your collection.

If you take a look at the class tokens, you’ll see that they aren’t extra character classes but instead class features. They include bardic inspiration, sorcery points, rage tokens, ki points, and luck points.

You get two of each in a pack, but I would rather have more character classes for when my players decide to go on an all-bard traveling band campaign.

Pros and Cons

I always think it helps to create a pros and cons list before doing most things in life. Hopefully, this review has helped you decide whether to buy The Rusty Bison’s Wooden D&D Token set or not.

I’ll summarize my thoughts to help you make a decision:

Pros:

  • Beautiful Engravings
  • Clear Engraving
  • All Character Classes Included
  • 10 Enemy Tokens Included
  • Made From Eco-Friendly Materials (Wood)
  • Cheap
  • Can Fit In Standard Battle Maps
  • Can Expand The Pack When Ready

Cons:

  • Arrives in Plastic Bags
  • Cannot Buy Multiple Classes (yet)

Final Verdict

This set of Dungeons and Dragons tokens is perfect for a new DM or anyone starting to build a miniature set. They are cheap, good for the environment, beautiful, and contain all the major tokens you need.

When you’re ready to make another purchase, the expansion packs are stupidly cheap, and the engravings are just as good.

The tokens fit on all standard battle maps, which means you can take them to D&D shop games and know that they will be the correct size.

My only two criticism is that the wooden tokens come in plastic bags for protection. I would rather have cotton bags, although that would bump up the price tag. And the second criticism is that I want to buy an expansion pack of character tokens, but they aren’t available yet.

I will be keeping an eye on that expansion, so watch this space! In the meantime, join me and get The Rusty Bison’s D&D Token Starter Set.
